The advances in technology surrounding pacemakers has led to an inevitable increase in the complexity of ECG interpretation of pacemaker–generated rhythms.
Simplified Interpretation of Pacemaker ECGs offers a step–by–step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations. An invaluable resource for cardiologists, residents, house officers, general clinicians, and nurse practitioners, this text includes:

a step–by–step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations
a brief refresher course on basic ECG interpretation with an overview of the conduction system of the heart
a review of the hardware associated with pacing
an explanation and discussion of the sensing and pacing function
coverage of the most common pacing modalities and unusual pacing situations
a series of case studies that bring together all of the information
learned and provide the reader with a self–assessment of topics to review
ECGs, charts, and illustrations
